The department of surgical gasteroenterology at the Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Center (MMHRC) in Madurai, acquired an advanced three-dimensional (3D), high definition (HD) laparoscopy imaging system.
The use of the latest technology, the system will deliver bright, clear real life vision in 3D, said the hospital's medical director, Dr Ramesh Ardhanari. The method is found to enhance the surgeon's perception so that they can perform the laparoscopic surgery with precision.
The 3D HD imaging machine provides improved speed, accuracy, and precision for surgical tasks while helping the laparoscopic surgeon to shorten the learning curve. It may take a surgeon, 25 surgeries, under the two-dimensional (2D) scope, to master a specific skill related to the surgery of an organ, revealed studies.
A stomach tumor surgery which usually takes three to four hours, can be completed in half of the same time if 3D HD technology is used. Tissue planes and vasculature are easily identified providing a more accurate view of dissection. The procedure is used for a wide range of procedures like bariatric surgery, thoracic surgery, and gastro-intestinal surgery.
The ERBEJET(waterjet) machine, which was initially based on a technology used for cutting stainless steel and has now found its use in field of medicine for resection of liver, soft tissue, gall bladder, brain and kidney. Damage to blood vessels, nerve fibers and other vital organs are avoided are avoided with the help of this machine. The technology benefits patients as the time under anesthesia is reduced and blood loss is minimized.
